Ho wan In hlgll nplrlts an ho strolled
whlntlliiB down Contra! Park Went.
It wan spring; bin health wan good,
tho nun wan shining brightly, tho
birds In tho park woro twittering mer
rily, and In a pokor session tho night
before ho had won S27C, of which 70
wan In cash. In nn Inside pocket a
check for S200, tbo balnnco of hln win

Ho reached tho bank on which tho
1200 chock had been drawn and
blithely awung through tho doorn, In
domed tho paper and presented It nt
tho paying tellur'n window.
Thero was a pauso while tho teller
got busy with hln books. In a moment
ho wan back at tho window:
"Insufflclont funds," ho nald.
Tho sun was obscured bohlnd black
clouds, tho birds In tho park were
squawking horribly, forgotten pains
began to remind our hero of their
If tho maker of tho check won tho
kind of man who would give an N. O.
check to pny a pokor loss, ho was
surely not tho kind of man who would
make good later, thought tho holder of
tho worthless paper. Then ho had an
Idoa. Ho asked tho teller how much
tho check's maker had on doposlt, but
tho toller refused to Inform him: say
ing It wan against the rules.
Over on a pnrk bench our hero pon
dored hln problem. At length ho roach
od n solution.
Thn check'n maker wan In tho the
atrical business. Our hero visited a
press agent of his acquaintance and
got a couple of complimentary llckots.
Then ho visited tho bank again. From
tho special guard he learned tho pay
ing tollor'n namo.
Then ho wrote n note to tho paying
tollor, enclosing tho theater tickets,
and to It ho signed tho namo of tho
maker of tho check. Ho sent tho nolo
and tickets by special mcssongor to
Then nftcr waiting half an hour ho
called up tho bank and naked to talk
to tho teller. When ho wns connected
ho gavo tho name of the niakor of
thn check, talked pleasantly for a mo

Just sent, and then asked how largo
his balnnco was.
Tho teller, glad to do tho favor to
one who had Just sent him two theater
"One hundred and forty-throe dol
lars," ho said.
Our hero after a comment or two
hung up tho receiver and walked
straight around to the bank.
Hero ho questioned tho receiving
teller to mako sura thoro would bo

"Can I doposlt monoy to anothor
man's account?" he asked.
"Certainly," said tho receiving toll
er. "Wo'ro always glad to got monoy
Our hero thon made out a doposlt
slip for JG0, under the name of tho
makor of tho check, and shoved tho
slip atil SCO through tho rocelvlng
Thon ho walkod to tho paying tollor
with his $200 chock.
"I'd llko cash for thla," ho said.
The paying tollor looked at the
check and repeated his "insufficient
funds," but our hero said loftily:
"Pardon, but a doposlt which makes
tho chock good was Just rocolvod."
Tho paying toller looked It up and
found this to bo correct, so thoro wan
nothing left for him to do but pay out
tho money. At a cost of SCO our hero
had mado a bad chock for $200 good.

a river In Palestine that nover flowod
on Sunday? A strictly veracious
story to match this is told in a recent
number of the Proceedings of tho
Connecticut Society of Civil Engi
neers by Mr. Robort E. Horton. it
appears that In tho red sandstono of
tho Passaic valley thero is a spring,
locatod in a picnic ground, which for
merly flowed porpctually. Its habits
havo changed, nnd It now flows only
on Sundays and holidays. The mys

nrtoslan wolls woro borod Into the

to supply water to adjacent silk dye

days and holidays, when tho pumps
aro not running, tho artesian slope is
drawn below tho lovel of tho spring
